I am a new poster to the persecutionblog, and I thought as my first post you might like to know a little more about me. Below is my basic bio.
I look forward to being a part of this discussion; I consider it a great honor to work on behalf of my brothers and sisters in restricted nations, and to be a part of VOM's efforts to tell their stories to Christians in the free world. Thanks for reading!
Todd Nettleton is the Director of News Services for The Voice of the Martyrs, working with the media to tell the stories of persecuted Christians to people in the United States.

In his role with VOM, he has met with Christians who face persecution in Sudan, China, Egypt, Turkey, Eritrea, Vietnam, Pakistan, Indonesia, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Bangladesh and Azerbaijan.
Todd is a former sports writer and a graduate of Bartlesville Wesleyan College (now Oklahoma Wesleyan University), and has done postgraduate work at the University of Oklahoma.
The son of missionary parents, Todd did part of his growing up in Papua New Guinea, and the rest in Southern California.
